The Association of Staff Physician Recruiters (ASPR), the leading authority on physician recruitment, onboarding, and retention, today announced the results of its 2016 In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Report. With more than 150 organizations representing nearly 400 professionals participating in the survey this year, ASPR officials are hailing it as their most accurate reflection of the current state of the industry to date.
“We are excited to launch this year’s results. Our participation was very strong – increasing nearly 25% from last year,” said Scott A. Hackworth, CPA, who is a vice president at Industry Insights, Inc. and is the survey’s lead researcher. “We saw some great increases in the volume of searches data provided by respondents, as well as the number of recruitment professionals represented by the data. These jumps coincide with more searches being performed throughout the U.S. and more in-house physician recruiters needed to perform them.”
Among the key findings among in-house physician recruitment departments in the survey are:
